    Who knows. I've killed most of my deer with a .30-30 150 grain behind the shoulder and don't remember one ever going more than about 40 yards. A slower bullet may have more of a "shock factor" than a faster one. The impact of the slow old .30-30 often knocks them off their feet when it strikes whereas sometimes they don't even realize they've been hit by one of the high speed low drag magnums.

    I've killed more deer with both my .35 Remingtons shooting 200 gr, than all of my other long guns combined...and I've got several, and several 300-400 yd plus tack drivers. And why even consider, unless absolutely no other option, to blow through both shoulders?...punch those lungs or heart, they ain't going 40-50 yds at best.

    What kind of .35's do you have? I'm thinking it would be lotsa fun with a 200 grain lead slug around 1800 fps. I'm kind of a lever action freak, currently have four .30-30's, a .45-70, a .357, and a .22. Always looking for more, of course!

    Well, looks like I am now a recurve shooter. Scored a LNIB Fleetwood Spartan 60"/40# on Fleabay for $75.00 shipped. Any advice for the new guy just starting out with these old school launchers? Unless I discover a hidden talent for it I don't think I'll hunt with it any time soon, even so I would keep shots to around 25 yards max. Give me the basics, like how to properly set the nock, how to shoot off the shelf, etc.

    'Nother thing, this bow doesn't come with a stringer. What would be the best one to get?

    Two Remington 336C .35's...I shoot both in 200 gr Remington Core-Lokt rounds, or you can get them in 180 gr as well. Here in the mid-Ga woods most shots are within 75-100 yards easily, and sometimes gotta punch through some thick chit...but if I'm on a powerline, gasline, or over looking fields, I'll grab one of my long range bolt actions.

    My local guy gets them in every so often. The Remlin 336C is as nice as the old New Haven guns were, the 336A looks just awful. I'm a reloader and caster and the .35 looks like a good choice for lead slugs.
